knowing when you're pregnant--naturally... - Page 2

post #21 of 27
It was written on my face. 10 enormous zits, 8 in a circle to the left of my chin. I could smell Everything. My feet and hips got wider, I got heartburn (lots of relaxin in my body) It took 10 or more pg test to prove it to dh, over the course of 2 weeks. I kept thinking, if I am not pregnant, something is really wrong with me, since I feel so different!

Well, with my first, I had suspicions, but I didn't trust my body.

With my second, I had been charting my temps, and I knew I was going to be ovulating within 2 days. I told my husband BEFORE we dtd that if we didn't use anything, we were going to conceive a girl. We didn't use anything, and 9 months later we had a girl. I took a HPT a couple weeks after conception to verify I was pregnant.

With my third, I was still charting my temps. I knew I was going to be ovulating within 24 hours. I told my husband BEFORE we dtd that if we didn't use anything, we were going to conceive a boy. We didn't use anything, and 9 months later we had a boy. I actually knew just a few days after conception that I was pregnant. Triphasic. When he implanted, my temp raised another half a degree. I didn't actually have to test. I just did it to appease my husband.

I get this "throbby crotch" thing 2 days after conception I've only had this twice, and each time I was holding a baby 8.5 months later So I knew the second time, without a test, that I was most likely pregnant. I did do the pee test, just to be sure. Both my kids were obsessively planned, though, so it wasn't like it was coming out of left field, ya know

My mom knew with me the day after conceiving me.

I didn't just know with either of my kids but I was charting to get Miles and I had a triphasic chart and implantation spotting, so I knew the pee test would be positive.

I have read that your pulse will become faster when you become pregnant as you have to pump more blood for the growing babe

My FIL told me I was pregnant with DS by feeling my pulse

I suspected really early with my first two and just "knew" with my third,which we were trying for and I knew when I ovulated. I had a dream about a baby boy, my temps stayed high etc. First test I took was negative, I took it really early becase I woke up having to pee (another symptom) I was SO disapointed because I had just known! Two hours later when I really woke up, I pulled it out of the trash on some weird impulse and there was the faintest line Id ever seen, in fact it was so faint I wasnt sure if I was imagning or not. (with my first two, it turned dark purple forget blue but then this was way earlier). I stopped at target on my way to work and poas right there in thier bathroom, this one was still pretty faint but definatley there!!

So...I'd say other than peeing on the stick, theres your temp and your intuiton. But then there have been plenty of times I was pretty sure then I wasnt.
